On article Beta: try out our new 'light' color scheme (722 comments in total)

Much nicer, much more modern feel. The black screen looks like 1995.

Intriguing, but 2.32 pounds may make it less desirable as a travel cam.

WOW! Exactly what I've been waiting for!

I guess you had to have been there or something.

If they gave out Oscars for idiotic ideas, this would be a sure winner.

No EVF, no sale.

Be still my heart!

The ultimate problem with this ill-conceived ad campaign is that it applies to ALL brands of cameras, not just to Canon. There's nothing in it that makes me want to buy Canon instead of Nikon or Panasonic or Sony or Fuji, nothing that really distinguishes Canon from the others. To me, it merely says that photography and videography are fun. Oh.

bakhtyar kurdi: I am happy there is many healthy people here that are brave enough to say :
The emperor has no clothes.
Others who pretend to love those ugly snapshots are thinking this way:
I know they are ugly,but they are been proved buy top class photographers, so there is a hidden reason behind selecting them, but I don't know what is it, but someone for sure knows,so if I criticize them I will look stupid in front of those who understand what is going on (and there is none)
The difference between the story of the emperor and this story(and all our stories ) is :
in the case of the emperor,some smart people sold imagination to the emperor and made him walk naked, in our stories the emperor is selling imagination, and made everyone (or most of them) to walk naked, just to prove to himself that he deserves to be an emperor and everyone else is stupid.
smoke kills every year 400 million people around the world, and almost everyone still smoking,so you don't believe that the emperor is correct?

What can one expect when a crucifix in a bottle of urine is considered art. The emperor isn't only naked – he's dead, and by his own hand at that.

On article Backstory of Phantom Flex4K video shot at 1,000 FPS (92 comments in total)

Great video, but not terribly realistic due to the virtual absence of smoke in the interior of the house. Firefighters tell me that the smoke is so thick in such fires that you can't see your hand in front of your face. Of course, that would make for a pretty dull movie -- or maybe a genuinely terrifying one. Those who criticize firefighters as overpaid and under-worked don't understand what these guys endure.

RDCollins: Sorry, Sony, but I need an electronic or optical view finder! The option you offer is far too expensive and compromises the camera's compact size.

Good for you, but I'm seriously thinking of selling my G1X for the same reason -- I can't see enough detail on the screen in bright daylight to frame photos to my satisfaction. That defect reduces the camera to a true "point and hope."

RDCollins: I don't see anything in the article about using drones. Any more information on that?

Thanks, although I can't believe that thing could get close to the lions without scaring them away, especially considering some of the photos.

This story lacks critical information.

I think you'd take great photos with a Brownie Instamatic!
